A Dutchess County man is facing multiple charges after being arrested and attempting to fool officers in Yorktown over the weekend, police said.

On Monday, the Yorktown Police Department announced that Poughkeepsie resident Raymond Williams, 28, was arrested late on Friday afternoon in Yorktown following an incident on East Main Street in Jefferson Valley.

According to police, shortly after 6:15 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 27, police received a call from a woman at the intersection of Route 6 and East Main Street, complaining of a man that allegedly harassed her and damaged her vehicle.

During the investigation, responding officers determined that a man dressed in black allegedly kicked the side of the victim’s Dodge Durango, damaging the side door, before fleeing the scene. The suspect would be subsequently tracked down to the property of Trump Park.

While at the scene, Williams allegedly gave a false name to officers and attempted to flee the scene before being placed under arrest.

Williams was charged with a felony count of criminal mischief and misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and false personation. He was arraigned by Judge Salvatore Lagonia and remanded to the Westchester County Jail without bail. He is due back in Yorktown Court on Friday, Feb. 3.
